Hello, on my advice my dad (61) dumped his windows machine and got a Macbook Pro (17".) His new system works great, except that he does have trouble reading the menu bar on the top due to it's small size on the big high resolution screen. It's the most vexing problem he has with the Mac, and hopefully something Lion will change. I hate to be "windows does it" kind of guy, but it's time for OS X to allow the menu bar to be made larger for those older computer users. Anyone else agree/disagree?
